Voto Finale

The Course aims to analyse the relationship between "politics", "society" and "communication" in our contemporaneity, in order to develop critical competences required to understand the political, sociological, psychological and ethical phenomena of contemporary society and its languages. The Course will be constructed with a cross-disciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, through philosophy and political philosophy alongside the communication strategies studied by sociology, anthropology, psychoanalysis and other humanistic subjects.
In particular, the Course will focus each year on a topic that allows a multidisciplinary approach.

The Course will consider three different didactic and formative themes:
1. Identification and definition of a multidisciplinary concept; preliminary analysis of this concept through a philosophic and historical approach.
2. In-depth study of this concept, with reference to some classical works concerning different humanistic subjects.
3. Study of the communicative aspects connected with the main concept, using a multidisciplinary approach.
